How to prevent bloggers from getting scammed/cheated out of money?
August 29, 2015 7:33am CST
I have been working online for the past five years. Like me, many of you have been writing too. Some content writing sites cheated the bloggers and did not pay the hard earned money that was due. How do we prevent this from occurring time and again?

I'm not sure if you can take complete certain action to prevent it from ever happened again. But to minimize to the chance of getting scammed, you can do some research about the site or program you want to join before you decided to join. Read reviews about the program and find as many testimonials as you could to see what others say about them. If would help you to decide whether or not the program suit you.

I don't think it's possible to prevent it happening again. We just need to learn to recognise scams and that's not always easy. When a brand new site comes along there are no reviews to check and no proof of payment from anyone, so how do we know whether it's a scam or not? I guess sometimes the only option is to try a site but take it slowly until one sees that they pay their members what they earn, but even that is no guarantee. Many people received a lot of money from Bubblews before things went wrong. One thing I'm always sceptical about though is sites where the terms of service are very short, with little information provided, and are also written in broken English.
